Christine... and Bailey, playing at the Bridge

Schnitzel was a tough little dog who thought he was a Doberman in disguise. Some days it was hard work keeping him alive, but I'm not sorry that I did it.
Since Schnitzel was first diagnosed with IVDD, my vet has come full circle and heard about Handicapped Pets through the U. of Georgia where he attended vet school. He first told me that I'd bring Schnitzel back within a week to have him PTS. Thankfully, I found HPets and all of you. MY!! How times have changed in the last 8 years. We owe it to all of you mods and to Mark Robinson for his persistence at giving people another choice. Thanks Mark! You made a difference in my life, and that of Schnitzel's life. He had 8 more years of a good life.
I'm looking in my computer files for my fave photo of him....meanwhile, if you have a Flickr account, you could view the photo here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/38776274@N ... 995243180/
Carol, I almost forgot that I blew up the dryer! Once upon a time, I used the top of the dryer as the perfect height to express, and expressed into a pan or cloth. One time I shot a stream of his urine into a crevice on the top of the GAS dryer. It shorted out the dryer and the next time I tried to start the dryer it BLEW OUT a FLAME around the entire top!! So...we had to buy a new dryer...so what....it was only a dryer and not the house.
Yes, his little face was white. He lived to a ripe-old age, largely through the support of this board.
Thanks to one and all.
Your years here as a moderator and the help you gave to people are part of the change. It was work that bore fruit, and the change is forever.
